Figurines is a Danish indie rock group with main focus on intense and stripped rock songs. Formed in in the small town of Vestbjerg, Northern Jutland, they lived at a distance to an established music scene, the nearest indie rock bands playing in the town of Aalborg. This is possibly the reason why the band sounds more like American lo-fi like Modest Mouse than the rest of the Danish indie rock acts.Read More...
Figurines was formed in the mid 90s by Christian Hjelm, Andreas Toft, and Claus Salling Johansen. In 2001 the debut EP "The Detour" was released, and later that year Kristian Volden joined. The EP got them a contract with Morningside Records - a label that has continued to contribute with releasing the work from indie and lo-fi acts from Jutland (West Denmark).
In april 2003 "Shake a Mountain", was released and the single "Bright" got some airplay. The band signed with german label Pop-U-Loud. The same year they played the Roskilde Festival.
In 2005 the longplayer "Skeleton" got them an american deal with The Control Group and a favorable reception in the US.
24th of May bass player Andreas Toft left the band and was replaced by Mads Kjærgaard..
